Windows 7: Major Peripheral Problems with Windows 7 64bit Ugrade

Vista Upgraded to Win7
Major Peripheral Problems with Windows 7 64bit Ugrade

I hope someone can help me. I have three computers, all had Vista Home Premium, and the two 32Bit systems updated to Windows 7 without difficulty. I then updated my main styem, an HP M9517CB 64 bit system, amd not any of the peripheral hardware works properly (except monitor, mouse, and keyboard). Sometimes it finds my DVD player, sometimes my iPod, sometimes an MP3 Clip, sometimes a portable harddrive or HP Personal Media Drive, but then it can no longer find them. I can't sync my iPAQ or iPod, or download audiobooks to an MP3 player, and can't even copy multiple files to a portable drive to transfer to another computer before my system cannot no longer find the device. I've updated the Video driver, but that didn't change anything. The only driver with the yellow triangle is one of the Universal Serial Bus drivers, Port_#0003.Hub_#0006.

Any suggestions??? I am stumped and would really appreciate some guidance.

When you say Upgraded I am guessing you did an upgrade install versus a clean install.

Just a thought

You might go to the HP support site for your model computer and download any Windows 7 drivers or at least Vista drivers for you system; store them on a drive other than your system drive.

Then do a clean install of windows 7, you will find a nice tutorial on how to do this with an upgrade disc in the tutorial sections on the forum.

You will most likely find that Windows 7 will have the drivers for all of your peripherals.
